If a reviewer feels as if the PS3 hasn't had enough quality games so far and that Killzone 2
is a diamond in the rough then I want to hear about it. A lot of PS3 fans understand that this is one of the make-or-break games for the system. If someone loves the Wii
and a game comes out that exemplifies all the reasons why they love it then I want to share
in their excitement. Yet some people would have them pull back from that and pretend that it's just another game coming out of the unbranded game factory: this is, for some reason, supposed to be 'integrity.'
Subjectivity and personal bias are the lifeblood of the reviewer. Without them they've got nothing
, because they're exactly the thing that transforms a review from something anyone could have written to a piece of text that genuinely engages the reader about the game and gives them a true sense of what it may be like to play it. In the end, it's up to the reader whether the reviewer was a suitable conduit through which to garner an impression of the game.
